We asked our hosts to share what was on their holiday wish list for Santa this year. Here's what they said!
A new car. :) My Honda Fit keeps getting run over with us in it, so I think we should get a new/used, larger vehicle. :)<br>- Amy Allan
1) Go Pro HD mini cam with monitor<br>2) Apron from www.emilerwin.com<br>3) Leather kniferoll wrap for keeping my cooking gear handy on the road<br>4) New iPad<br>5) Immersion Circulator<br>6) Vacuum Seal Machine<br>7) New iPhone<br>8) Pair of killer handmade vintage cowboy boots<br>9) Guitar lessons at the local shop<br>10) Home Entertainment Tech Guru house call to help us untangle, set up and streamline all our digital media<br>-Andrew Zimmern
Andy didn't have a wish list. Looks like he will be spending the holidays with family like his mom. Notice the resemblance?
I don’t like to ask for too much at Xmas. I really do stand by the motto, “better to give than receive.” Nonetheless, if the following were under the tree I would not return them. <br>1) A NEW BIKE! A Linus Roadster please.<br>2) A NEW CAMERA. Something portable in a pouch on my belt or it’ll never be used enough.<br>3) PENDLETON BLANKET. I’d like to own the whole National Parks Collection. Alas only have Acadia and it’s covered in cat hair!<br>4) GO-PRO VIDEO PACKAGE. I use the little cameras all the time on Off Limits and have kinda fallen in love with the image produced.<br>5) A NEW WOODEN CANOE. <br> -Don Wildman
1) Trek Madone carbon fiber road bike (I wrecked & ruined my 13 year old Trek this year)<br>2) The ultimate fleece that doesn't cook me when worn inside but keeps the wind out & core warm when things get blustery around here.<br>3) A better pair of socks, with a bit of wool in them, but thin, warm, wicking...and kind of groovy looking.<br>4) Nikon D5000 camera<br>- Joe Bechtold
1) Books. Always and forever, digital or physical, I don't care, just gimme books. Books that blow my hair back and sweep me away and change the way I see the world.<br>2) A new suitcase. My trusty old bag is falling apart. She's logged a lot of miles.<br>3) A long-seasoned heirloom of a cast-iron skillet. Truly magical cast-iron is a generation in the making--it takes a lot of meals and oil and love.<br>4) This is a terrible idea, but after playing the guitar with a band in Seattle, I kinda want one. The problem is that I could practice for 70 years and still not be able to play Old McDonald.<br>-Marcus Sakey
For my family to be safe & healthy, which is the best gift of all ... I get asked every year what I want for Xmas and it's always the same response, NOTHING ... I get more happiness from the gifts I give my family. -Steve Di Schiavi
Well, I don't have one. But I am organizing a New Year's party in Portugal with my boyfriend and another European Sand Sculptor, and I have been wishing to do that for months now. - Sue McGrew (girl on the right; with her mom and siblings)
